Torture Chamber

Bristol, Pennsylvania

Actually, it's a tattoo parlor. I guess it could seem like a torture chamber depending on which part of your body is being tattooed. Unfortunately, I know from experience. Thankfully, I haven't gotten a tattoo this century and I don't plan to.  :-)

  1. Ah, whatever floats your boat, I guess!! I was just relieved when none of my kids seemed so inclined!! What a great one for the day though -- as always, James!! Hope you have a great weekend!!

  2. I love the imagery, the iconography and the artistry, but could never commit to a tat. Cool shot of a very cool customer!

  3. Tu aurais du attendre Halloween pour poster celle-là :o)
    L'image est fabuleuse, inquiétante , presque mise en scène pour un plateau de cinéma!

    Et c'est malin, maintenant je me demande quel est ton tatouage ..:o)

  5. The environment looks not inviting at all indeed, I wouldn't enter that place.

  8. A while back I was tempted, but at my age I decided it was a bit late. Fine monochrome.

  9. It is more and more sophisticated, I know too many older people speaking against any tatoo...
    This picture says a lot.

  13. Great photo ---and title. I've never quite understood why anyone would want to be tattooed anywhere that would always be visible ---but then, what would be the point if it were hidden under clothing? I guess it's sort of like dressing up ---except that it is permanent (or painful to remove.) I remember when my mother was aghast that I had my ears pierced, telling me it would be permanent and I'd be sorry. I've never been sorry but then, I can change my style of earrings to fit my age, outfit, circumstance, or occasion or wear none at all. I wonder if Angelina is sorry she had "Billy Bob" tattooed on her arm? It's either gone or covered with makeup now.

  14. Each to his own, of course. I wouldn't have not it, even for that lady :-)
    The low key approach works beautifully and all the details must be there.

  15. I'm sorry to be so late - I think my comment failed to post yesterday.

    I'm much too old now for tattoos, but I've seen some beauties that I'd love if I were 50 (or even 40) years younger. Love your photo!

  17. Wonderful photo in B&W! Great scene!

  18. I'm baaaaack!!! If you want to see where I've been you can do so on VDP's post yesterday!

    This is a delightfully frightening photo (considering I'm well into a Criminal Minds marathon)!

    Now of course, your caption begs the question: which body part? :-) :p

  19. That is a great one! the girl certainly seems in her element.
    Like you, I got one tattoo, last century and that was more than enough!
    I have five kids and they all have tattoos (some more than others). Guess what folks? They are all normal and successful.
